Grote St. Tea Cake tin s Motteram and Sons.Q: I would like to know the order of marks on items made in Japan. Does it make a difference if the mark is red, green, black or another color? A: Most pieces marked with the name of a country were made afterwhen the McKinley Tariff Act was passed.
Beginning inU. According to experts on 19th- and 20th-century Japanese ceramics, the color does not help date a mark. Red, green and black were used most years. There is no explanation for when other colors were used. It has a beautiful colored pheasant with long tail feathers and background is yellow. I have seen design similar in some Kutani pieces. Has black outlined and painted inside. Problem is I cannot find a similar mark anywhere.
It has two very small red marks. These are then in a rectangle together and painted red. I have a teapot with a gold sticker with red letters on the bottom with pheasents as the design. The teapot has a handle on top made with maybe bamboo. I have tried to locate one on the internet to see the history of it. Can you give any insight to help me. Thanks so much. I have a piece with a blue and silver Made in Japan sticker.
When did stickers begin to be used and are they still used? Thank you. I found out that the dragon and a phoenix means fung shay.
It has dragons and birds on the outside and Japanese letters on the outside and on the inside it says hoto hoto.

How to Tell if Something Is Made in Occupied Japan
Unknown 1. Not Specified Style see all Style. Art Deco 2. Post-War Design 1.I'm tearing apart the internet, and can't seem to find anything! Any help would be appreciated. Best, Collin. Is this what you are referring to? Perhaps the stamp was not applied perfectly leaving a C rather than an O. No, this is definitely C. Many companies came and went and few records remain. I am not familiar with the CPC mark.
Vintage Handpainted Dragonware Fairyland China-Made in Occupied Japan - Set of 6
There are some books on Made In Occupied Japan out there. I do not have any of them though. Collin, try joining "Collecting Japanese Ceramics" on Facebook.
You can post your pictures and maybe someone will have an answer for you there. I have a figurine of little boy blue, horn and chicken. The mark on bottom says made in occupied Japan, however the word occupied is upside down. Japan is on top then the upsidedown occupied, then Japan last. Is this a mistake or what? It was probably stamped and whoever made the stamp put the "Occupied" upside down. Probably only a few were made before the error was discovered.
Could someone tell me a bit more about the piece, please? It appears to be poorly hand painted. Keep in mind that many cottage industries existed cranking out exports as fast as could to meet demand.
Children and other family members participated in the decorating of the wares. Most of the companies no longer exist and no records were kept. I think the pottery was probably made after intended for export to boost the economy after the war, but I'm not sure. Could you help me? I received the set as a gift from my grandmother, so ever since I've wanted to know more about it. My mother has just given to me a rose pattern 'Regina' teaset - Teapot, sugar bowl broken handle, bits savedcreamer, 6 cake plates, 6 saucers on slight chip and 5 cups.
Sentimental value to me as my father bought while on leave while serving in Korea and shipped to my mother. What is the best way to value this in Australia and is it possible to repair the handle - or even worth it?
Thanks for your time. I couldn't tell you the value but I can say that sets of China are not selling well these days. Most people rarely sit down for a formal meal anymore. As far as repair, not sure the cost of epair would be worth it.
Hello, I have a piece that is showing it was made in Occupied Japan. It has a "W" inside two leaf branches, it also says it was handpainted. The plate has some raised flowers, look like roses with a gold band around the outer rim.
